THE THEORY  OF THE HELMHOLTZ  RESONATOR
With this alteration (15) holds good for the interior,   U denoting localised   normal  velocity at  the  surface  still  measured   outwards, U= dty/dr.
We have now to introduce approximate values of %7l_i (c) -4- %n (c) in having regard to the assumed smallness of c, or rather kc. For this pu: we expand the sine and cosine of c* :—

* 1917. In the expansions for the derivative of cos c/c terms (now inserted) were acoider omitted, as has been pointed out by Mr F. P. White (Proc. Roy. Soc. Vol. xcn. p. 549). Equ (17) as originally given was accordingly erroneous. Corresponding corrections have been i duced in (19), (23), (24), (36), (38) which however do not affect the approximation employed in Mr White's main object was to carry the approximation further than is attained in (57) and (es the value of ^ at a point whose angular distance (0) from da is cos"1/A. f XH has the form given by (4), the result applies to the exterior surface f the sphere.
